Verge: Dancing a Scarred and Sacred Landscape trailer
Shot in one of the last remaining old-growth forests in British Columbia, Verge follows a group of dancers as they explore the intricate beauty of this magnificent yet vanishing landscape.
Verge: Dancing a Scarred and Sacred Landscape
Verge captures a tactile experience of an ancient forest ecosystem as perceived through the moving body. The project was shot in and around Avatar Grove (Vancouver Island), in the traditional territory of the Pacheedaht First Nation. This is an area where some of the last remnants of ancient forest on BC’s south coast still stand, starkly contrasted by expanses of stumps in nearby clearcut valleys. Verge is part of larger collaborative body of work that explores concepts of stewardship and the legacy we are imprinting on the earth.
